A QUOTE FOR THINKING ABOUT WHAT MATTERS

 I’ve begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own.

Chiam Potok

No matter what your beliefs about a higher power, a day devoted to a simpler life is strengthening.  To me that means thinking about what matters, not spending money, not working on any  commercial ventures,  not using my beloved computer, turning off the cell phone,  connecting with friends, nature, my G-d and as the quote above points to, silence.

STAYING STRONG  ADDED VALUE TIPS

Spend one day a week without traveling; turning on the tv, radio,  or computer.  Doing so  practices kindness for our planet.  Try it you might like it.

My Parents Are People Too Blog always has tips on Friday for taking a break.  You might find some useful ideas there.

AS ALWAYS, PRACTICE KINDNESS

Be kind to me,  like this post or share it.  You will be helping me stay strong and maybe some others as well.  You will also be practicing one of the 12 Daily Emotional Fitness Exercises.  Click here to view all Daily Emotional Fitness  Exercises.If  regular practice of the 12 Daily Emotional Fitness Exercises does not improve the quality of your life, more might be needed.  That is the time to think about therapy.

Good luck, life is a struggle, caring for children harder than you expect AND despite the struggle, life as a parent is also wonderful.

A DISCLAIMER

Sometimes my posts are a bit peppered with mis-spellings, oddly used words, weird punctuation.  These stem from a lesser known learning disability called dysgraphia, but also from rushing.  My apologies. Don’t read or check back in a day or so, as I usually catch most of the errors when I re-read.  Also practice forgiveness is a useful Emotional Fitness Exercise, so forgive me, I do the best I can, we all do.  Sometimes the best is not good enough, that is when forgiveness matters.
